First Grade Programs
Beetles, Butterflies, and Bugs
Get up close and personal with insects and other crawly creatures. Young entomologists use nets to capture insects and magnifiers to observe them in the field. Students try out different insect mouth parts, act out insect behaviors, and use their creative energies to build a Mini Beast.
Fur and feathers and fat, oh my! Hands-on activities, animal displays, and a hike through the woods immerse children in the world of Alaskan animals. Students investigate animal characteristics and solve an animal tracking mystery while learning about special features that allow animals to survive in Alaska.
